Thanks Cuban for the fun last night, Some good battles.
Interesting to watch Hotleads stream, but would be interesting to see someone do one on the Entente side, Maybe a US103 can do one.


Enjoyed the change too. I actually liked that earlier 1917 map plane set and was looking fwd to flying Se5as with 103rd but had to leave the session early. Was there an issue with AAA that prompted the switch to late war map?

Agree on streams, unfortunately my pc not up to it. But it's tactically interesting to review and that US103rd banter often has me chuckling away :)

Salute all!

I see that this Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US. Do we maybe want to consider moving this week's fly-in to Friday?

 

EDIT: I talked with US103_Hunter, and we've decided to keep it on Thursday. Just would be easier that way. ;)

I'd be there save for the fact that I have to work at A Perfect Circle concert tonight. Should be really cool. I saw Tool earlier and that was incredible.

Salute all! Had a blast flying tonight on Cuban's server! Super-low cloud cover made navigation quite interesting to say the least lol! Thanks for keeping things fresh Cuban! :D
 
Here is the archived Twitch stream:
 
I've been experimenting with adding a webcam to my streams. This time, I had the camera view my controls as I flew. In previous streams, like my ARMA III and BF 1 streams, I had the camera view me. Feel free to let me know what you guys prefer! :)

That was a pretty fun map! The pups and tripes gave those albies a run for their money :icon_e_wink: Salute on that epic bounce of my beautiful triplane lol 

 

Thanks to all for flying, looking forward to next week at Wargrounds.  I have a small English Channel map with a similar plane set lined up for week after next as a sort of run up / familiarization flight to the Dec. 17th Knights of the Sea III event.  Until then, keep 'em flying!

Haha, thanks Cuban! And salute to you too for that first engagement! You flew the tripe like you owned that thing - good job forcing me down! I think I’ve learned a new respect for tripes. They may be hobbled but they’ll still get ya if you don’t look out!

That second engagement below the clouds was just terrifying lol. Can’t believe I made it out!

Looking forward to the Channel Map! :)

I flew a SPAD for my first sortie, PaulMF was with me but we did not see anything up high and had to RTB. Next we flew an RNAS patrol with a tripe and a pup, I got wounded by flak and had to head home. Then I took a pup down low and forced down one alb (S! Todt von Oben) then got into a mix with a couple of other albs. I shot one up pretty good with a blue and yellow stripe on the top wing and eventually help came and I had to break off for home wounded. Not sure what happened to the Albs.

It was a fun time.

Yeah, that cloud base made for interesting tactics. The Albie's ruled above cloud, especially when they flew with high and low pairs, but the pups and tripes were great down low...which is why the Albies never ventured back down! I guess if we'd done high Spads later we could've caused them problems.

3 jg1 pilots seem to 'claim' my Pup in separate skirmishes on Hotlead's stream, but for me it was all the same flight and I landed ok, tho empty fuel. So 1 x 'driven down' is all you're getting :P

Good fun. Looking forward to this week. S!

Oh dear! Well you could have told me before I issued all those medals and citations! I’ll have to take their medals away. (Except for mine - I’ll keep mine.) This is embarrassing. The whole Air Force will be shamed. Unless...yes, I think I can convince them to test fly the new (but very fragile) monoplane. That’s it! I know they’ll try some acrobatics in it, the wings will fall off, and they’ll die as heroes! Instead of bringing the Air Force shame, they will bring it honor!

Moral of story: If an egotistical General is involved, you never know what taking away a few kills from some pilots may do!

:P ;) :lol:

What a sight!

Alone, 20s out from the arty recon and you spot the whole German airforce in a formation climbing turn towards you!

JG1! Looked so spectacular but my heart physically stopped.

1. Must get arty recon done.
2. Try to survive. Climb to maintain some alt delta while also staying over target.
3. Done! Dive for home..oh crap, there's a high one too....
4. S!
5. Drinks all round in the mess

You maneuvered that DXII very well causing me to have a hard time lining up a shot and I was also worried I was going to spin out and auger in.

Unfortunately the GT's require we have no spaces in our names. And just Graham is fine.

Really enjoyed this session.

Entente had the Verdun map basically done with the best part of 40minutes remaining. We just couldn't get the arty battery to fire because Central kept bombing the damn things!

Watching Hotlead's stream you can see how they organised it. 

:icon_e_salute: to that.

 

@J2_Adam, below is a short video from LAST week on Cuban's server when you blew up me and J30_Mein with a single pistol shot! Though i guess the other 1000 bullet holes in our fe2b also contributed  :icon_e_biggrin:

True, the 1000 holes helped a lot. :icon_e_smile: To be honest, that gunshot was an utter and total fluke and surprised the crap outa me. Thanks for posting!

Had a blast yet again thanks all for the fun. Adam did he really insult your eagle by calling it a chicken!

 

Look forward to the next bash.

Hey guys! I was able to make the fly-in this evening! Here is the archived stream:
 
You will notice that this week's stream is in 2 parts. That is because my joystick/throttle went on the fritz while flying...twice. :(
 
Hope to have that solved soon!!! O_O

Lots of intense battles this week. So immersive. An empty sky suddenly filled with machines twisting and diving. Saddling up unseen then twisting round and finding 2 DVIIs lining you up! Great fun flying with the US103 too. Thanks guys!

 

I've put a video up in the Video section of a fight which captures some action between JG1_Hotlead, Hells Angel and myself (mostly me getting in HA's way :) ).
